How do you think Howard has done? What is your take and Ozzie coming back next year? Souundslike Isles will not let ups have Nabokov next year
Howard's season can be broken in to 3 parts
The beginning- looked like one of the best goalies in the league
The middle - looked like one of the worst goalies in the league
The playoffs - looks like he can play well enough to take the team to a SC
He was plagued with inconsistency in the minors too, it'd be nice to see him level out a bit, I don't care if he's the best goalie ever I just would rather have a solid howard than what we saw towards the middle of this season.
Osgood - probably retires, I'm sure Holland will call Snow about nabokov but I doubt anything comes from that, he's already expressed that he doesn't want to play for the Isle so who knows doubt anything materializes from it. For a backup I look at Conklin, Emery, couple other guys who are UFA's this year, it's not that Macdonald is bad, just not someone I'm comfortable with starting if Howard gets hurt for a long period, we'd also need to find a third stringer since well absolutely none of our goalies are even close to ready for NHL duty.
